Author has written 28 stories for Harry Potter, and Carry On.

In this house, we respect the Oxford comma.


I write exclusively ficlets (because commitment is hard), and the titles are all from Disney songs. If you manage to name where each is from, I will be extremely impressed.

I cross-post on AO3 under the same username, so if you prefer that format, you're welcome to find me there. :)
